Title: How about this for an idea...
Post by: RiXtEr on March 25, 2008, 10:41:56 AM
Thinking about the finger tracking video, and how the whiteboard software works, why couldn't someone make 2 strips of ir leds and put the wii remote in the middle of them (shown below by my poor ascii art) and then track only by using fingers.
W=Wii Remote
i=IR LED
-=Spacing
|=Spacing

W--i--i--i--i--i--i--i OR with 2 Wiimotes   W--i--i--i--i--i--i--i--W
|                                                             |                            |
i                                                              i                             i
|                                                             |                            |
i                                                              i                             i
|                                                             |                            |
i                                                              i                             i

It would be trickier with 2 wiimotes simply because of the field of view picking up the ir leds on the opposite side.
If anyone has tried this let me know how it worked out for you, otherwise I will try to build one for my monitor (small scale) when I get a chance.
